Buffalo Bills: 3 Reasons to Be Worried About Josh Allen in 2018

Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen has had a rough debut over the course of his first preseason campaign, which prompts some serious concerns about his abilities in 2018.

I want nothing more than Buffalo Bills first-year quarterback Josh Allen to have Pro Bowl-level success in the NFL. He’s from Northern California, as am I, and attended college at the University of Wyoming — a place where a number of my relatives and friends went to school.

And by all accounts I’ve read and heard, he’s a stand-up guy.

Still, that doesn’t change the fact I’m concerned with how he’ll perform this season for a Bills squad amid a massive roster overhaul underneath second-year head coach Sean McDermott.

The Bills, of course, moved up to the No. 7 overall spot in the 2018 NFL Draft to grab Allen. This move all but guaranteed Buffalo was hinging its long-term offensive hopes on the rookie signal-caller. And while Allen had plenty of major question marks from college (all quarterbacks do), McDermott and Co. were essentially going “all in” on Allen’s long-term projection and the ability to be a cornerstone for the franchise.

Hopefully all that works out before too long. But here are three major reasons why Bills fans should worry it doesn’t happen this season.

  1. Of course Allen needs some time. No way he starts as the starter. I wouldn’t really start him at all this year. Maybe if out of it a game or 2 at end of the year but he comes from
    Wyoming and needs some work. The Josh Allen hate and bias from major sport networks is pathetic though. Baker doesn’t get criticized like Allen. Allen outclassed him when the teams played and still hasn’t thrown a pick or turned it over. Bills online has looked really bad and Allen has had no time and virtually no running game. I wasn’t sure when Bills drafted him but even with last weeks egg, I’d rather have Allen for the long haul then any of the rookie qbs. He’s the biggest and strongest with the strongest arm and is the most athletic and best runner out of the bunch. Also seems like a blue collar, hard worker with little ego and good leadership potential. As of now, I think bills prob will struggle this year and maybe go 7-9 or 8-8 but I couldn’t be happier with bills 2 first round picks and I really like staton Johnson, Harrison Phillips and potentially Wyatt Teller. Back to back really good drafts, though we will see after the season, but if they can make it 3 straight great drafts and with all the cap space this coming off season, I love the direction of bulls for the first time in a while.
